Can I exclude node_modules folder from being `watched`?


I’m trying to run meteor in a docker container on a mac and performance is quite terrible. I’ve narrowed down the issue, I think, to the fact that the meteor app is watching the node_modules folder for changes. Is there any way to exclude this folder from being watched?

Create a .meteorignore file with node_modules in it?

@coagmano I don’t want to ignore them from the build process, I just want to ignore them from the /watch/ process. Adding the node_modules/ folder to .meteorignore causes the app to crash (because presumably those files will not be compiled)
